You're using your iPod nano as a storage device and you've put videos on it. Now you need to know how to put the videos on a computer. Think of your nano as a flash drive. Putting the videos on a computer is just a matter of transferring the files from one device to the other.
When "Enable disk use" is turned on the iPod nano becomes a sort of flash drive and you can use the nano to transfer video files between computers. Windows limits individual files to 4 GB, so keep that in mind when you're loading videos onto your nano.
Before you attempt to transfer files make sure "Enable disk use" and "Manually manage music and videos" are checked in the iPod Summary tab in iTunes. If you don't check these, iTunes will attempt to sync the nano to the new computer and could overwrite your data.
Plug the nano into the new computer and close iTunes if it automatically opens. Your video data files won't be visible in iTunes. Open "Finder" (Mac) or "My Computer" (Windows) instead. You'll see your iPod nano listed as an external drive. Double-click on your nano to view the video files. Drag the files to the desktop to copy them onto your computer.
Always eject the iPod before you disconnect the USB cable to protect your data. Either click the "Eject" icon next to the iPod name in Finder (Mac) or right-click on the iPod name and select "Eject" (Windows).
